  • Replied in Stills vs video
    For stills there is no benefit IMO – on the contrary – EVFs will be slower and less direct for action unless you get to the A9 class, which has no blackout at all, but seems to be an expensive ...
  • Looks to be a monster in size. 82 mm filters. https://www.diyphotography.net/first-images-leak-of-new-sigma-28mm-f-1-4-40mm-f-1-4-70-200mm-f-2-8-60-600mm-and-f-1-4-lenses/
  • Excellent!
  • Maybe your professional needs are a bit special. I wrote "mostly" . The K7 was in many ways a very good camera and nice concept. Small, silent,  very well built, big viewfinder, small primes, etc. ...
  • If you want the future road to be open for eventual professional/semi professional use it is best for many reasons to use the same brands as the pros - which for now is mostly Canon/Nikon and ...
  • And how long will that take? Before Canon and Nikons mirrorless cameras will sell for less than what a FF DSLR costs? Canon 6DII = 1.600 dollars – Canon R 2.400 (w simplest adapter) = 2.400 dollars ...
  • Created discussion thread Mirrorless - cost advantage?
    Now that Nikon and Canon has released their mirrorless I cant help reflecting on the prices. Suddenly the promise/argument that mirrorless would be cheaper to manufacture than DSLRs seems to be ...
  • My thinking is that an extremely expensive lens should give images that are something extra. Lenses like the 50 1.2 is such a lens - hard to replicate the look. But a 28-70 F2 is nothing special ...
  • Created discussion thread The "one-card craze" is over now...
    ...or so I guess, now that also Canon has introduced a very attractive mirrorless with professional features but only one card. I predict Nikon and Canon will sell lots of their new cameras and and ...
  • The 28 -70 f2 costs 3.000 dollars. For that price you could buy an extra EOS-R camera with a fast prime. I think many wants an affordable, reasonably compact normal zoom. At the cost of 400 dollars ...
  • What are you missing that prevents you from taking good photos?

  • Replied in Non issue
    I dont disagree. I shot this before I could afford a motordrive. When I could afford it, I got the same stuff as other sports pro photographers. However, the Nikon Z is not a camera you would use ...
  • These are great little wonders (I have a D3400 as a supplement to my main D600). If one could wish:
    1. small primes – a pancake 24 mm and a 70 mm portrait lens in the spirit and price range of the...

  • Canon will feel ”just right” in the hands of Canon shooters, just as Nikon Z obviously feels great for Nikon shooters. Few people will switch systems. Results will be excellent from all of them ...
  • Replied in D750 or Z6?
    Photos - D750, hybrid/video - Z6.
  • Replied in Its forbidden
    Haven't you heard the storm when the Nikon Z was introduced with only one memory card? You cant shoot a wedding, no matter how mouth watering good the images are, no matter how reliable the camera ...
  • According to some reports the video AF of the Nikon Z may be the best in the market. One wonders if this also goes for the F lenses via the adapter.
  • Replied in Non issue
    Then again, you came a long way by just good timing. The shot below was before I got a motor camera. When I later used motor cameras (Nikon FMs and F3) sports photographers worked with at least ...
  • Replied in Non issue
    I answered with the film reference since the poster mention it is ”only one roll of film”. I could just as well speak of the many action oriented digital cameras I have owned or used: Nikon D300, ...
  • Replied in Non issue
    When I had a Nikon F3 w a 5.5 fps MD4 motordrive I never ever felt the need to fire of a whole roll of film in one 6.5 sec single long sequence. And it has never happened with my digital cameras ...
